Node.js Application Performance Monitoring

Course Summary

Elastic APM agents automatically collect in-depth performance metrics and errors from inside your applications, but you can also customize the data that agents send to the APM server. This instructor-led course will guide you through the Elastic APM Node.js agent custom configurations and APIs. You will learn how to create custom spans and transaction traces in your application, as well as how to troubleshoot the agent. After completing this course, you will be prepared to instrument your Node.js application to track performance and application metadata that is not automatically collected by the Elastic APM Node.js agent.

  • Custom Node.js Agent Configurations
  • Custom Transactions
  • Custom Spans
  • Troubleshooting Agent Issues
